Shifter advice

I'm looking at getting a short throw shifter for my car soon. It has the stock v8 T5 5 speed. I have stock shifter with a pistol grip shifter. I've heard mgw is really good. So what should I go with? Mgw, pro 5.0, steeda tri-ax, etc. Thanks.

Re: Shifter advice

I personally prefer the Pro 5.0. Having owned and used one for numerous years now, I can attest to its reliability and toughness.

The MGW does have the advantage of more shift lever adjustment, but not having used one myself I don't know if it is as tough as the Pro 5.0 or not.

I don't know much about the Steeda either, other than people who have bought them seem to like them.

Oh. Alright. Might just go with a pro 5.0. Trojan, what's a good shift knob to use with it that you like?

I like the pistol grip shifter knobs myself.
I actually took a chunk of aluminum and carved out my own to fit my hand.

Here's a couple of examples - Pistol Grip 1 - Pistol Grip 2

I like these wrapped in Leather knobs too.

Here's a selection of knobs - 79-93 Shift Knobs & More Shift Knobs

I have this one that came with my pro 5.0 for a few bucks more. I really like it over the stock leather wrapped knob.

The pistol grip is good, and mine has a different design than these. I'll post a pic. I like the t handle but it doesn't really go with the car unless it's an older car.
